Stress-Free Scrap Buster Quilt Sew Along

This no-stress block-based plus quilt (or swiss cross?) sew-along is meant to make a serious dent in your quilting scraps!

Fabric Requirements – Scrappy Plus Quilt

My challenge to you is that you use your leftover scraps from your other quilting projects instead of heading to the fabric store!

STEP 1: Colour Sorting

Quilt color sorting helps because you will want to know which color of scrap fabric you have the most of…this should be your background fabric.

STEP 2: Pick your Plus Block Center

The colored center of these plus quilt blocks are what I call mix and match. Which means you can use different types of fabric scraps interchangeably.

Crumb Version:

STEP 3: Cut Your Fabrics

Start with whatever scraps you have and see what sizes you can come up with. Remember you can also piece scraps to make them big enough to cut a unit out of too!

STEP 4: Sew Rectangle Blocks

Take (4) 2.5″ x 4.5″ Center Square fabrics and (4) 2.5″ x 4.5″ background fabrics. Pair and sew right side to right side along the long edge using a 1/4″ seam allowance.

STEP 5: Construct a 9 Patch Block

Sew each block in 3 rows using a 1/4″ seam allowance.
